“Chinese food on Sunday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

This restaurant is open on a Sunday which is a bonus - the food was average and the service was poor even though there were few customers. Past reputation suggests it should be better.

“Go there on a sunday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

The restaurant is probably good on any day and portions are generous, but on sundays it is one of the very options to go to since most businesses are closed in Nuku'alofa
